New Info on Face Coverings

With the rapid changes to rules regarding face coverings during the COVID-19 Pandemic, Duke University published a fantastic article that describes different types of masks to guide you in the right direction and find the right mask for yourself and those around you.


Face masks or face coverings must be worn by all staff working on campus when in the presence of others and in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., common work spaces, meeting rooms, classrooms, etc.). Appropriate use of face masks or coverings is critical in minimizing risks to others near you. You could spread COVID-19 to others even if you do not feel sick. The mask or cloth face covering is not a substitute for social distancing.

Putting on the face covering/disposable mask:
1. Wash hands or use hand sanitizer prior to handling the face covering/disposable mask.
2. Ensure the face-covering/disposable mask fits over the nose and under the chin.
3. Situate the face-covering/disposable mask properly with nose wire snug against the nose (where applicable).
4. Tie straps behind the head and neck or loop around the ears.
5. Throughout the process: Avoid touching the front of the face covering/disposable mask.

Taking off the face covering/disposable mask:
1. Do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth when removing the face covering/disposable mask.
2. When taking off the face covering/disposable mask, loop your finger into the strap and pull the strap away from the ear, or untie the straps.
3. Wash hands immediately after removing.

Keeping space between you and others is one of the best tools we have to avoid being exposed to the COVID-19 virus and slowing its spread. Since people can spread the virus before they know they are sick, it is important to stay away from others when possible, even if you have no symptoms. Social distancing is important for everyone, especially to help protect people who are at higher risk of getting very sick. Staff at work on-site must follow these social distancing practices:
1. Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people at all times.
2. Do not gather in groups of 10 or more.
3. Stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherings.
